Gardiner Foundation Grant

“Columbia University has received a $1 million grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation to create web-based, interactive maps of Manhattan and Brooklyn during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The three-year project is a collaboration of Columbia’s History Department and the Center for Spatial Research in the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP).” Mae Ngai and Rebecca Kobrin are two of three principal investigators for the project.
